  3. Position Title: Post-doctoral Research Associate Salary: GS-12 salary (approximately $80K annually) and benefits Location: Patuxent Wildlife Research Center, Laurel, MD Performance Period: 13 months (anticipate start date August 2019) Application Deadline: Position Summary: USGS Patuxent Wildlife Research Center anticipates hiring a post-doctoral research associate to develop and evaluate novel approaches for management decision making for dynamic systems. Decision making for natural resource management often relies on the assumption of a relatively stable system in which the effects of both stressors and management strategies are not changing over time and can be predicted. Human and natural systems are governed by dynamic processes, however, and there is increasing evidence that these processes are no longer stationary. One implication of this realization is that the best available science and empirical observations of the past may represent conditions that no longer exist and have little relevance to future conditions. Therefore, we need new frameworks for management decision making that do not rely on the assumption of stationary dynamics of, for example, climate and land-use change. Migratory bird management in the context of climate change is an excellent context in which to examine questions related to system dynamics: migratory birds are important resources of management concern; migratory bird populations and their habitats are sensitive to climate change in ways that may negatively impact management outcomes; there are a variety of different decision making contexts, including land acquisition, harvest management, and regulatory permitting; and, finally, data and models are available to inform the development of novel management strategies. Minimum Requirements: 1. Ph.D. in biology (wildlife), ecology, or related field, with a focus on quantitative methods in population ecology. 2. Applicant must be within 5 years of receiving PhD. 3. Applicant must be a US citizen. 4. Demonstrated familiarity with concepts of decision analysis. 5. Demonstrated proficiency with computing platforms such as R and MATLAB. 6. Demonstrated desire and ability to publish in the peer-reviewed literature. Desired Abilities: Competitive candidates will have a strong background in decision analysis and population modeling. Strong programming skills are required, including proficiency with R or similar platforms for data manipulation and conceptual modeling, proficiency with MATLAB or similar platforms for dynamic optimization. The successful candidate will have excellent written and personal communication skills and demonstrated success in working closely with management agencies on applied questions in wildlife conservation. Application: Applicants should email: (1) a letter describing your background and interests – the letter should address specifically how the applicant meets both the minimum requirements and the desired abilities, (2) curriculum vitae, and (3) the names and contact information for 3 references to Dr. Jim Lyons (jelyons@usgs.gov). Please include “System change postdoc” in the subject line. For further information, contact: Jim Lyons (jelyons@usgs.gov, 301-497-5567) or Mike Runge (mrunge@usgs.gov, 301-497-5748), USGS Patuxent Wildlife Research Center, 12100 Beech Forest Road, Laurel, MD 20708. -- Jim Lyons USGS Patuxent Wildlife Research Center 12100 Beech Forest Road Laurel, MD 20708 tel: (301) 497-5567 fax: (301) 497-5545 email: jelyons@usgs.gov
  4. Project Title: Adaptive Management for Eastern Black Rails Position Title: Post-doctoral Research Associate Salary: GS-12 salary (approximately $80K annually) and benefits Location: USGS Patuxent Wildlife Research Center, Laurel, MD Performance Period: 36 months (anticipate start date October 2019) Application Deadline: Position Summary: USGS Patuxent Wildlife Research Center is seeking two post-doctoral research associates with interest in adaptive management and population modeling. Specific duties will be to develop and evaluate an adaptive management framework to increase population viability of Black Rails and other wetland birds. The Eastern Black Rail (L. j. jamaicensis) is listed as endangered in five states along the Atlantic Coast and has been proposed as Threatened under the Endangered Species Act. One position will focus on the Atlantic coast, where Patuxent Wildlife Research Center is working with the Atlantic Coast Joint Venture and other partners to test alternative methods of manipulating coastal marsh habitat to make enhance suitability for Black Rails. The second position will focus on the Gulf coast and will include management decision making for Black Rails, Yellow Rails, and Mottled Ducks. These projects will develop adaptive management frameworks that allow wetland managers to reduce uncertainty about management practices for Black Rails and other wetland birds, and give managers tools and information that will help them determine the best management actions create and enhance habitat for Black Rails. These projects will combine data about wetland management (e.g., timing and depth of water levels, burning, etc.) with Black Rail occupancy or abundance and vegetation response across many different project sites from NJ to FL and FL to TX. The data will be used to build and update statistical models that predict BLRA responses to management actions. Over time, these models will be used to test assumptions and improve predictions about what management techniques result in high quality habitat for BLRA across their range. The models and decision guidance will provide general predictions of how well a given management action is likely to perform. These positions are 3-year appointments located in Laurel, MD. Minimum Requirements: 1. Ph.D. in biology (wildlife), ecology, or related field, with a focus on quantitative methods in population ecology. 2. Applicant must be within 5 years of receiving PhD. 3. Applicant must be a US citizen. 4. Demonstrated familiarity with concepts of decision analysis. 5. Demonstrated proficiency with computing platforms such as R or MATLAB. 6. Demonstrated desire and ability to publish in the peer-reviewed literature. Desired Abilities: Competitive candidates will have a strong background in decision analysis and population modeling. Strong programming skills are required, including proficiency with R for data manipulation and statistical modeling, Bayesian networks for conceptual modeling, and MATLAB or similar platforms for population modeling. The successful candidate will have excellent written and personal communication skills and demonstrated success in working closely with management agencies on applied questions in wildlife conservation.

  8. http://www.americanornithology.org/content/aos-lanyon-award The Lanyon Award recognizes the early-career ornithologist who authors the best synthesis/review paper on avian science, to be published as an open-access article in either AOS journal (The Auk or The Condor). It is given in honor Wesley “Bud” Lanyon, who served as the 37th President of the American Ornithologists’ Union. Bud was a steadfast and committed in the field of ornithology and was a respected mentor of many generations of scientists. He was particularly keen to support researchers in the midst of writing their dissertations and those who had recently completed their PhDs. Because they possess a thorough understanding of the current literature, he recognized, they are poised to provide novel insights into classic areas of ornithology and to elucidate emerging fields of study. The Lanyon Award consists of a $1,000 honorarium to the winner plus a $1,000 travel stipend and gratis registration to attend the AOS annual conference, where the winner will organize a symposium on their winning review topic. Application Process & Eligibility Details Eligible applicants include doctoral students or early professionals within or up to the end of their third year post-PhD. Proposed papers should fit the journals’ mission and scope and be novel contributions that advance ornithology, not simply a review of a body of literature. The prize will be awarded to the individual who proposed the winning paper and led the writing. Proposals with multiple authors must include a statement that the first author conceived of the study and did the majority of research and writing. Interested applicants must first submit an abstract of their proposed paper (details below). The journal Editors-in-Chief together and the four Deputy Editors will review the submitted abstracts, and up to 6 entrants per year will be invited to submit full manuscripts to the appropriate journal within three months. The EICs and Deputy Editors will select a winner from the final set of accepted papers. The winner will be notified in advance of the next AOS meeting so that the symposium can be planned. The winner will be announced to the public as soon as the winning paper is selected, and the award conferred at the AOS annual meeting in which the symposium occurs. Note that the prize will not be awarded in a given year if no submitted papers are deemed suitable for publication. 2019 Call for Abstracts Instructions for submitting an abstract via the Member Portal will be posted very soon. Tentative schedule for the inaugural competition: 30 August 2019: Deadline for submitting Abstracts for consideration Early October 2019: Invitations made to authors for full paper submissions 31 December 2019: Full papers due March 2020: Selection made, authors notified, winner announced Summer 2020: Papers published (dependent on editorial schedule of the specific journal; target is to publish before meeting and symposium) August 2020: Award presented at NAOC 2020 in Puerto Rico
